RE: A Few Computer problems
Depending on the spyware you've 'inherited' it might be easy to uninstall.
Run task manager and see what .dll / **** processes are running that shouldn't be (Google the filename.ext to help)
First download Spybot: Search and Destroy and Adaware.
Start your machine in safe mode and run both scans.
Delete any files that are dodgy on your hard disk.
After it's fixed download Firefox!!!
